Strong winds are hitting parts of Wales. A house in Milford Haven had slates blown off overnight. Coastguards there say they've had a gale Force 8/9 but the wind's dropping. Holyhead coastguards say they've had a severe gale Force 9 ( that's 47 - 54 mph) and it's expected to return later.

One lane is closed on the Severn Bridge and there's a 40 mph speed limit; on the Britannia Bridge it's 30 mph.
